Congratulations, my fellow alumni! Your hard work and dedieation have earned you a degree from 
Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts (MCLA). 

'our graduation from MCLA represents the completion of an academic joumej . and. I hope, a journe\ of 
earning and discovery in many other ways. When I think about the Class of 2012 I am impressed by what 
you achieved at MCLA. Together we took the first steps in building the MCLA Center for Science and 

Innovation. You amazed us with your Undergraduate Research Conference presentations. You served as 
eaders of clubs and organizations. You wowed us with your achievements on your athletic teams, your 
earless performances on stage, and your amazing creativity in the gallery. Main o\' you demonstrated the 
rue meaning of multitasking with your ability to balance academic, work, and family responsibilities. Still 
Dthers of you inspired and humbled us with your service to the community, and to one another. Through all 
jf these experiences, you laid the foundation for future success as professionals and citizens. 

Thank you for being part of the MCLA community during your time here. As you move on from the 
College, you will join new communities, and forge new relationships, but you alwa\ s w ill carrj a piece o\' 
:his place with you. Nurture the friendships and the relationships you developed during your time here. 
Mever hesitate to call upon your classmates and fellow alumni for guidance, information, and support, and 
ways be willing to offer the same in return to other members of the MCLA famil) . 

Stay in touch with us through the Alumni Office. Call or write, friend us on lacebook. and even drop h\ 
or a visit. Help us continue to celebrate your accomplishments, and keep you connected w ith what is 
lappening on campus, and at alumni events in your area.

Faculty & Staff 



All year round, both 
faculty and staff provide 
students the best 
education and support 
they can get. Many 
events that faculty and 
staff attend outside of 
the classroom include 
ice cream socials, 
convocation, graduation, 
student conferences, 
and much more. MCLA is 
a tight-knit community 
amongst the faculty, 
staff, and students, 
where they all work 
together to help students 
grow and become the 
best they can be after 
graduation.
